Greenville Splash Loves Summer Swimming
Greenville Splash swimmers are continuing to enjoy a healthy lifestyle by swimming through the summer months. Workouts are well attended with swimmers enjoying a great workout by avoiding the summer heat and swimming in cool water.
Greenville Splash has enjoyed many group practice swims at Lake Jocassee this summer. Our turnouts have been gaining in numbers. We are up to 30 swimmers joining us for this beautiful outdoor experience. It has been fun to see new swimmers experiencing the adventure of the open water. We thank you to all of our volunteer kayakers this summer. Our swimmers have been rocking the triathlon world and having fun at the Growler swim meet. This meet was so much fun. The team swam fast and then headed straight to the beach at Sullivan's Island. Make sure to put this meet on your schedule next year.
Swimming in the summer is a natural part of our lifestyle. Help us make that come true for children in our community by participating in the Upstate Splash. We have 30 spots left so register today. The proceeds from our events will provide swim lessons to those in need.
The Olympics have inspired us all, come join us for a workout with Greenville Splash! Check out the calendar section of the website or facebook for more information. We always welcome all swimmers to any of our workouts, events and socials. Join the fun!
